Dear Hextall....

Halloween is here again and I am sick of entitled youth going door to door begging for stuff!
My house gets vandalized every year with toiletpaper, shaving cream and those flaming bags on the front steps (this year I WON'T be stomping the flames out!!!)
I asked a neighborhood ruffian WHY my house was targeted every year. He told me it was because I was "cheap and mean".
I am one of the most GIVING people!
I buy HALLOWEEN themed dixiecups and fill them to the RIM with water!!!
Well, evidently, THAT is not what the entitled little beggars feel is "owed" to them!!!
I am angred by their petty retaliation!
I am having difficulty making a decision about what to give the punks this year and would appreciate your input!
Water....sans expensive Dixiecups or Savings bonds?

    So should I just crap directly onto your porch and forgo the bag this year?

    It would be the most fiscally responsible thing.

    A scholarly participant of this board suggested an ice cube. It makes a sound when you drop it in their bag and then trickles down. I won't mention Greenman's name as the one who suggested this to protect his anonymity.

    I have a difficult time because I want to hand out candy, but I don't want to violate the restraining order. If I stand 500 feet away from the kids and just shout to them that they should help themselves from the candy bowl, do you think that will work?

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Swampy, I'll bet this year you're saving even more money by serving hurricane Sandy run off.

    How come you keep asking Hex for advice I know for a fact he was only in 3rd grade once?

    If you unwrap the TP carefully from the trees, you may get a free month's worth of TP! Count your blessings!

    Yes. TP makes dandy lemonade.
